Carpal tunnel symptoms can include hand numbness and weakness caused when a peripheral nerve becomes trapped among muscles and ligaments.
Repetitive hand and wrist motions, such as habitual typing or texting, can contribute to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel is overdiagnosed, and your problem may be more complicated than this. The nerve may be entrapped in multiple areas, meaning that other treatments, such as surgery to cut a ligament, may not be the solution for everyone.
Traditionally, Carpal Tunnel treatment has been limited to decompression surgeries, physiotherapy, and prescription medicines. Because these options often fail to deal with the underlying problem, they may only provide short-term relief, and at times they prove completely ineffective. When left untreated or unsuccessfully treated, people are forced to adapt their lifestyles to accommodate this debilitating issue. This may include quitting one’s job and needing help with basic everyday living.
Fortunately, many people are finding long-term relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome through chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic medicine is a non-invasive alternative that seeks out and deals with the underlying cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. A chiropractor will evaluate your condition and formulate an individualized treatment plan that will correct nerve interference in the spine and restore you to an optimal state of health.
